Retribution - Sherrilyn Kenyon My Thoughts: I enjoyed this book overall with one small exception. While I liked Abigail, I had a hard time believing that Acheron (pregnant Tori or not) or the other dark hunters would just let her off for killing their own kinda with nothing but some simple barbs. It goes against everything we know about these characters and their world. I think I may have been more forgiving of this if there had been more hatred/animosity towards her that eventually diminished rather than straight "whateverness".
I have always liked Jess when he has shown up in earlier books and it was nice to get his full story. I loved the mix of his heritage and the dark hunter/greek world of the series.
This book was also filled with plenty of action and old friends. I like when the books of the series seem to go towards a larger overall goal than just the HEA and this one fit that bill. Not that long to wait for the next one (11/11).
